Bristol Care Homes – Bus Advertising Campaign

Have you spotted these striking new fully wrapped buses that we created for Bristol Care Homes?

We designed and arranged a multi-channel recruitment marketing campaign for Bristol Care Homes (BCH) to increase enquiries for both care home beds and staff employment roles. BCH needed a strong brand communications platform to reflect its unique approach in providing excellence in all aspects of care for all residents in an ever-increasingly competitive industry.

This year’s campaign needed to reflect the care homes ‘Best in Class’ stamp for care plans, activities and catering and with these bright eye-catching colours and simple messaging we were able to create a strong visual identity. We tailored the campaign to specifically reach local audiences at a city level in and around Bristol where the four care homes are located.

Bus advertising was a pivotal part of the campaign as we know that with the right creativity, a fully wrapped bus becomes an icon and a very strong brand statement in a city environment, one that consumers will trust and engage. It’s a high impact and high exposure format with high brand recall – making this out-of-home option an excellent way to quickly spread awareness.

This was also backed up with a year long radio and digital advertising campaign across all social media platforms improving on-site user experience and generating an avalanche of solid leads… delivering on the client brief with an uplift in resident intake and staff shortages.

Chief Executive Richard Crocker had this to say

We have been delighted with the experience of working with pace. We were so impressed with the initial conceptual designs; we could see straight away that the design team understood our challenges. They were unique, creative, uplifting and well thought through”
